another first.

Never had I ever explored a ship this big that was once used in combat. It was quite exhilarating to explore the U.S.S. North Carolina, a top-of-the-line battleship that was relied heavily upon during World War II, especially to do so with my boat-and-plane-and-all-things-similar loving husband. I loved finally meeting this big beauty who I've snapped pictures of a thousand times. 

We learned all about her lifespan and history and victories and maintenance and so much more, all within the two hours we spent aboard her decks. Every time we were sure we had reached the end of our explorations, we found another room to make our way through. The words huge and beautiful may appear to be appropriate descriptions of her, but they really only scratch the surface of just how huge and beautiful she truly is.
